To Kill a Mockingbird

To Kill a Mockingbird is a novel that really makes the reader think. It gives the reader another perspective, a third eye that helps the reader to see things in his or her life from a different view. The themes in this novel are unforgettable lessons that will never grow old.

My favorite character was Scout. Scout reminded me of myself when I was younger. We were both tomboys. I hated dresses, tights, and anything else that seemed all too girlish. Spirited, unattached, carefree . . . and boyish. I loved the outdoors, tagging along with the boys. I loved learning new things; everyday exploring and being incredibly mystified. Just one of the guys.

My favorite part in the novel was the conversation that Boo Radley and Scout shared. The reader is finally introduced to this mysterious, hidden character. Scout seemed instantly attached to him. It was almost as if they were soul mates. Not many people click together like that so quickly.

This book is definitely a novel to be passed on. It was sad, but informational. Many people forget about what life was like years ago. In remembering this, we have the knowledge and know-how to prevent it from happening again.

This novel offers its readers a different perspective to an important part of our countrys history. It tells us of what it was like to be an African American during that era. It also shows us the difference between men and women. Regardless of how many people insisted that everyone was equal, some people could not see past a persons outer shell. It is the inside of a man that makes him who he is.
